3D-Tech News Around The Web / Stereoscopic 3D Monitor From iZ3D

Link: Stereoscopic 3D Monitor From iZ3D: Passive Glasses and Polarized Screens

At GDC we had the opportunity to check out the latest from iZ3D, a company that has been making stereoscopic drivers for quite a while now. Their drivers can enable stereo viewing on any PC through anaglyph (the red and blue tinted images we are all familiar with) in addition to working with other technologies. Most recently, iZ3D has introduced a stereoscopic viewing system that makes use of an actively polarized monitor and passive glasses in order to bring simple and easy to use stereoscopic viewing to the masses without the color distortion associated with anaglyph.

Hi all,
as you can see, dear readers, the number of news has somewhat dropped these last weeks. This is due to my recent move and come back in Switerland. But the real reason is that I still don't have a serious internet connexion thanks to Sunrise (one of the few ISP in Switzerland) that needs, when there's no problem, more than one month to set up a high speed connexion (seems they have to dig a trench for the line for each new subscriber...). But when there're problems (?), the delay to have internet at home jumps up to 2 months! Sunrise really sucks! What a shame!

Anyway don't panic, Geeks3D is not dead. The news will start again very very soon. Thanks to Stefan, there are fresh news
in the forum. And a new geek, called Satyr, has just join Geeks3D squad. Satyr will cover Blender's world: news, articles and tutorials.
Yes, Geeks3D will start tutorials about Blender and real time 3D!

The version 1.7.0 of FurMark will be released shortly, followed by the version 1.8.0 of GPU Caps Viewer. And currently I'm working on GeeXLab's documentation...

See you soon my friends!


In this Intel-sponsored feature, part of Gamasutra's Visual Computing section, Kalra examines ways to render realistic grass in your game, utilizing DirectX 10 and vertex shaders.

Because of the geometric complexity, rendering realistic grass in real-time is difficult, especially on consumer graphics hardware. This article introduces the concept of geometry instancing with Direct3D 10 APIs and shows how it can be used to implement realistic grass on consumer graphics hardware.

Sapphire HD 4890 Atomic runs at 1GHz @ FudZilla

It’s our pleasure today to welcome Sapphire’s HD 4890 Atomic Edition graphics card which runs at no less than 1GHz, while at the same time being much quieter compared to the reference design of the card. HD 4890’s reference clocks are 850MHz core and 975MHz (3600MHz effectively) for the GDDR5 memory. Sapphire overclocked memory on its Atomic 4890 from reference 975MHz to 1050MHz.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Confirmed: ATI's R800 is Dual Chip

ATI new R800 GPU (that will boost ATI DX11 high end card) is made of two 40nm GPUs: two RV870.


6 Steps to Mod Overkill: The Quad-Core, 1-kW, Liquid-Cooled Desk

The components—motherboard, graphics card, hard drives, etc.—would all be mounted beneath the surface of a transparent desk. Because an optical mouse would have trouble tracking on a clear surface, we imagined an integrated clear trackpad that would turn part of the desktop into a pointing device.

Because there are so many news around the web, the need for a specific forum for these news was obvious. This forum will contain all news found around the web by Geeks3D team. I will choose the most relevant ones and post them on Geeks3D front page. This is a reply only forum for regular members so do not hesitate to comment news!

Welcome to Geeks3D's Forums!

After one year of existence, Geeks3D has now its own forums. The aim of these forums is to provide additional information and interactivity to regular posts on Geeks3D.

As soon as the need for a new forum becomes clear, I will create it.

So the first really useful forum is about 3D tech news.

I hope you enjoy using these forums  ;)
